hearings on thursday, republicans are making noises about chuck hagel. the only strange remaining might be evidence of any interesting and therefore important resistance to chuck hagel is probably this ad, you might have seen from an unknown group called "use your mandate." >> chuck hagel, he has been nominated to be secretary of defense. and president obama nominated him with the best of intentions. but it is still a bad choice. hagel is anti-woman, anti-choice, anti-israel, anti-gay, and pro assault weapon. that is just not what we voted for in november. chuck hagel doesn't share our values. there are other people who can do the job, why do we need someone like this? >> so that ad ran on the three network sunday shows last week, not to mention this network, msnbc, apparently multiple times. that is what they tell me, basically, everywhere but fox news. it is not a huge ad buy, but they are counting on lots of free media to further their message. free conservative media, in particular, so in the national review, look, liberal groups, anti-haggle ad hit tv screens. liberal group release
, is former republican senator chuck hagel, i say there used to be suspense, because there were questions about whether there would be fight from the left have dried up. chris coombs, all have met with mr. hagel this week, he assuaged their worries, ditto, charles schumer, of new york, he addressed criticism of his hard-line anti-gay and anti-abortion political past. he addressed that criticism, where they largely neutralized it. ahead of his confirmation hearings on thursday, republicans are making noises about chuck hagel. the only strange remaining might be evidence of any interesting and therefore important resistance to chuck hagel is probably this ad, you might have seen from an unknown group called "use your mandate." >> chuck hagel, he has been nominated to be secretary of defense. and president obama nominated him with the best of intentions. but it is still a bad choice. hagel is anti-woman, anti-choice, anti-israel, anti-gay, and pro assault weapon. that is just not what we voted for in november. chuck hagel doesn't share our values. there are other people who can do the job, w
chuck hagel has his confirmation hearing on thursday, i believe. "the new york times" reports that several secretly funded conservative groups are running ads against him. john kerry's hearing was fairly straightforward, as you know. what is the white house expecting with the chuck hagel nom nation hearing? >> reporter: the white house concedes not everything is going to be easy. they acknowledge this is the first confirmation hearing battle really to take place in this sort of super pac era post-citizenships united which means several million dollars are already being spent by groups on both sides. a lot of this money provided by donors, millionaires and billionaires even who have ideological views that are vastly opposed to those of chuck hagel. the white house though is confident he's the right guy for the job and will best carry out the president's positions going forward. >> and a final question, pete, i understand and some republicans will probably be pleased about this, that a self-appointed monarch actually visited the white house today by the name of king james. is th
for chuck hagel as defense secretary, that sealed the deal, would you gentlemen agree? >> yeah. i never could envision how he would start obama's second term by coming out and going against chuck hagel for secretary of defense. never made any sense and yeah, once he came out, the story ended. i loved the media chatter about how hagel has this huge confirmation battle and will end up with 90 votes. schumer was the first and final voice on that, i think. >> john: i think that was more due to the alleged controversy over comments about the israeli lobby by hagel unfortunately called the jewish lobby. chuck schumer one of our most powerful jewish members of the senate. >> i was surprised. even this morning, i was watching tv. there were anti-chuck hagel ads being run by this -- one interest group. i was quite shocked. they went after him for the israel, for comments he made about -- >> myrlie evers, widow of the late, great myrlie evers. >> america, we are here, our nation's capitol, on this day, january 21, 2013, the inauguration of our 45th president, barack obama. we come at this time to
on that right now than focusing on these distant things. >>> a new anti-chuck hagel ad has popped up. the ad is from a conservative group called americans for strong defense. at least five other groups from the right and left are a organizing to block hagel's nomination. the president out on tuesday. republican congressman paul ryan said both parties are waiting on the president. >> the question many of us are asking, is he looking to play politics or does he want to solve the problem? we don't know the answer to that yet. we know there are a late of democrats in kwg who want to solve this problem, fix this mess and many of us agree with that. >> white house correspondent peter alexander joining me live. on tuesday can we expect to hear from the president about actual legislation or is he going to give us more of the contours of what future legislation would resemble? >> he is diving head first into this major policy speech of his second term. it is going to take place in a state well familiar with the issue of illegal immigration. one of the risks of proposing specific legislation, a bill t
of state in chuck hagel and john kerry who are known for favoring a light footprint. do you think that they are going to take the action that you believe is needed? >> well, i look forward to raising these questions with them when i get a chance to attend their confirmation hearings in the case of senator john kerry or to meet with him in person in the case of senator hagel. i met this morning with senator kerry to give him an update on this trip. a number of the senators who were on the trip with me met with him, and i am determined that we make certain that the united states invests in the kind of forward leaning relationship in africa that will take the fight to al qaeda in africa and that will invest in stability in countries where, if we don't partner with them effectively, they may slip into the kind of state that mali's in now. just a few short years ago, mali was viewed as a stable, democratic ally of the united states, and it's come unwound fairly quickly. i chaired a hearing on december 5th to look at mali and to look at the situation there and try and raise its profile.
they do. more broadly, they're asserting there is broad opposition to chuck hagel, we're just not allowed to know who it is. i'm not buying it it, i say bull-pucky, i might be wrong, but i call bull-pucky. and if i am wrong, there is an easy way to prove it. come out, come out, whoever you are. if you are not bill crystal or somebody like that, i'll be the first to admit i'm wrong. but i don't think i'm wrong. this is not a liberal group, it is a right-wing group, you're trying to look like liberals and we can tell. that does it for us, we'll see you monday night. now it is time for "the last word." have a great weekend. >> it has been a huge week in the world of politics, we had the inauguration, of course, followed by house republicans stepping back from the brink on the debt ceiling. but the big political story of the week got very little attention until tonight. >> we're going to show the country here is an alternative path to the one that the president has us on. >> the republican party's big plan for renewal. >> we're committed to producing a budget, a plan that will balance the bud
patrol proposes. we'll probably hear from lapierre. >>> chuck hagel's nomination hearings begin. nominated by president barack obama for secretary of defense. these could be interesting to watch. reservations by senators of both parties. >>> on thursday, yes, it could be, could be hillary clinton's last day as aersecretary of sta. depends on how the nomination process for her replacement, john kerry, plays out. that could happen on friday. on sunday, the super bowl, of course. the 49ers take on the ravens in new orleans and, just to note, coming off her inauguration lip syncing controversy, beyonce will perform at this year's big half-time show. that is a look at your week ahead. >>> how is this for a family rivalry. the head coaches of the super bowl bond baltimore ravens and the san francisco 49ers are brothers. jim and john harbaugh and are their parents choosing sides? brian todd has the report. >> reporter: they tried to downplay the family angle, but it's virtually impossible. >> i don't think you ever put your family aside, joe, you know. but, well, yeah the priority. we
